Visited for lunch 18/5/15. Staff friendly and service excellent. Menu choice good and all appeared home cooked,including crisps ( they don't sell bags crisps ). Food good quality and very enjoyable. Lovely old country pub. Would definitely visit again.

We returned to The Pheasant and, once again, we were impressed. The standard of service and the quality of the experience were both consistently high. Nothing is too much trouble. It is also such an excellent location for walks in the less-crowded Northern lakes. It offers real value for money for what is offered in terms of both accommodation, food,... More

We stayed at the Pheasant Inn for several days and ended up eating almost every meal there. The included breakfast is superb. We had no complaints at all, everything was perfect. We only saw one American there the whole time. This is truly an English hotel/pub and we met many delightful people. The recommended walk that starts and ends at... More

We had just spent a couple of lovely days in Kirby Lonsdale, Kendal and Sedberg , on our way home we rang the Pheasant at Bassentwaite (one of our favourite places) to see if, at this short notice they had a room and to our surprise they did. We had a brief but very enjoyable stay, again, drinks in the... More

This is the second time we've stayed here as we loved the first time so much. The rooms are spacious and the food is excellent. The bar has an extensive whisky selection and serves local ales. The location is very good.

Enjoyed 4 days at the end of April as a base for walking some of the northern fells. Very nice, quiet, comfortable room. Food was very good standard and excellent value. Staff very friendly and super efficient. Really enjoyable stay.

Great food but charging £2,50 per head ambiance charge was a joke. This was for supossedly superior restaurant and we thought it was just average. This was also for the views of fells but to make matters worse we dined in the evening and could not see a thing. Im sure if they persist charging £5 per couple this will... More

I visited the pheasant inn last Easter with my parents when they came up to carlisle to visit me. We happened upon in while we were on a walk and stopped for a few drinks. We then went back later on that day for afternoon tea, which was delicious. After that my Mom requested that we went there again on... More

During our tour of the Lakes we spotted a sign for the Pheasant Inn just as we were about to join the main road by Bassenthwaite Lake and decided to stop off for our lunch. The place is set back from the main road so you feel like you are nthe middle of nowehere. The garden to the side is... More

Our Wedding Anniversary falls on New Years Day, and we were looking for somewhere to stay without paying the usual New Year package prices. This lovely place was recommended to us and we weren't dsappointed. We arrived on 1st January in torrential rain and stayed for 2 nights in a wonderfully warm and cosy retreat. Our standard room was lovely,... More
